Obras de Musica[CD]
~ Claudio Astronio(Boxed Set, 7PC)
This complete recorded survey of his Obras de música para tecla arpa y vihuela represents one of the most remarkable, and celebrated collections of instrumental music of the sixteenth-century. The collection divides by genre into instrumental elaborations of liturgical texts; intabulations and transcriptions of popular motets by composers such as Mouton and Josquin; and the famous and original tientos, prized for their combination of the composer’s intensity of expression with a good deal of variety and ingenuity. The performances on a variety of instruments and ensembles are masterminded by the Italian keyboard player and musicologist Claudio Astronio, whose musical enthusiasms range from early music to jazz and pop. A new and original Integrale of Brilliant Classics, the only available complete recording, recorded in 1995–2010. Excellent liner notes written by Spanish musicologist Andrew Woolley Cabezon was a master of the keyboard (organ and spinet), and most of his works are instrumental, either solo keyboard or for ensembles of stringed instruments. A unique survey of an important era in the musical history, played by expert musicians, using period instruments: Claudio Astronio and his Harmonices Mundi.
